Very few people know the story of Kuldip Singh, the 50s pop phenom whose career was cut short by horrendous immigration policies and systemic racism in the industry.

I want just 3 straight hours of that Colonel Sanders-looking mf talking in front of a bunch of CRT TVs, droning on about “choice is an illusion, ergo you must not choose to make a choice” as Keanu just nods sagely and collects a check.

@jsmooth995  LOL my man this is a mythical man month problem. Adding more staff to a popeye’s to improve service would be like hoping 9 women could have a baby in 1 month.

Having lunch with my parents and they are, unprompted, telling me about great mangoes they ate growing up. In case you’ve ever wondered if @harikondabolu  tells the truth.

Tear down all the fucking confederate statues and build a statue to this story.

Uncanny how much Change The World sounds like MJ. (think “Push Me Away”!)

A fascinating thing that seems to be evolving rn is kids’ summer camp songs are incorporating triplet rhymes, after a full decade of dominance of the style in mainstream hip hop. Feel like all the classic old-school camp songs were strictly 4/4 on the beat.


I’m in favor of immigrants who come to America to not do anything remarkable, who just hang out & sometimes spend time with their friends and family, who are flawed, regular people. I’m in favor of immigrants who don’t have to be superheroic or economic martyrs to justify access.

Did you know: Prince would often get a library card for any places that he was going to be visiting for more than a few days in a row; library cards for Oakland, Baltimore and other cities were amongst his personal effects at Paisley Park when he passed away.

Unlike , I’ve led teams creating innovative new tech on the Internet. Everyone who’s done so knows that killing net neutrality is bad for society — not just because it harms tech innovation, but because it compromises our civil rights.

Every goddamn year the media disrespects our kids for winning the spelling bee. Every time.

How come we have to listen to the voice of the poor working class when they back white supremacists, but not when they pull off one of the most effective and sustained labor organizing efforts in decades? Where are the countless fawning media profiles of the teachers?

I expect they will have more to say tomorrow, but Ahmed's sister asked me to share this photo. A NASA shirt!
